Bean Avocado Salad


Serves 6

  • 1 head of romaine or green leaf lettuce, shredded
  • ½ head green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 orange pepper, chopped
  • ¼ cup red onion, diced
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can black eyed peas
  • 1 avocado
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper to tasted

After the craziness of Thanksgiving, I needed something simple and healthy to help reboot my system and give my stomach a break from all the sweets. This salad worked surprising well in jars. I just mashed up the avocado and added lime zest/juice and salt and pepper. Then mixed the beans and onion together, layered those on top, and put the lettuce, cabbage, and pepper after that.

Super fast and easy so I could spend the rest of Sunday sitting by my tree.
